    While the character models are spectacular and the dozen or so sets of animations are well done everything else seems half-finished. When flying you will randomly transform when near buildings and if you enjoy driving on ice then you should have fun with racing controls. The "bonus materials" hardly deserve any recognition. Pictures you could easily find on the internet and trailers for While the character models are spectacular and the dozen or so sets of animations are well done everything else seems half-finished.

Pictures you could easily find on the internet and trailers for the movie are the bulk of what you receive for tracking down energon cubes and completing sub-missions (read as "pointless waste of time"). If the movies makes you feel euphoric then this game is for you, otherwise pass this half-finished thing by. Expand

    The game's fun, mindless fun. Its difficulty is well ballanced (Taylor A., come on... it's not hard at all m8!, about the Achievements, go look @ xbox360achievements.org, and easy gamerpoints suck!, the harder the cooler!). It also brings the possibility of soing the whole game as the bad guys and blow everything up.

    This game is a must for Transformer die-hards, it's very well done visually. The graphics and sound are spectacular. The only thing holding this game back are the controls and cameras. They are not the best by far. I love the bouncing camera as you walk, it gives you a feel for how big these guys are. The driving controls are far too sensitive and the physics aren't right at This game is a must for Transformer die-hards, it's very well done visually. The graphics and sound are spectacular. The only thing holding this game back are the controls and cameras. They are not the best by far. I love the bouncing camera as you walk, it gives you a feel for how big these guys are. The driving controls are far too sensitive and the physics aren't right at all. You can hit a car head-on and send it flying like it was made of paper - but hit a brick or a sign and you almost stop. There's a lot of hidden content and extras in this game to keep you busy. The core missions are short and the story can be beaten very quickly. But if you take your time and find a lot of the hidden stuff you'll be playing this game for a long time. A definite purchase for Transformer fans who will spend the first 20 minutes just hitting the "transform" button 500 times. If you're not a huge fan rent it first. Expand

    It's pretty fun and it definetely fun transforming. Their are some things that need to be fixed, like maybe the collision and the driving physics. The way you slowly pick stuff up is a little broken, but it definetely is enjoyable if your a fan. Anyone who doesn't care for the transformers brand should skip it.

    While it has alright voice acting by Megatron and Optomis Prime, the rest of the cast sounds like they just got picked up off the street. Levels are big, but for the most part you are confined to small squares. There is no real challenge as decepticons as most enemies go down after a hit or two, the autobots racing levels feel like grease has been put on the road.

Fifty dollars should buy something that lasts more then ten hours. You want a fun adult beat-em-up game? Get Soul Caliber 2. You want a fun kid game, try Kameo. This game is too poor of quality for adults and too hard to wield for children. Oh, and if you want a fun game that can be played by both adults and kids without chucking the game, system, and all your transformers toys out the window so that you never have to sully yourself with the memory of playing it, avoid this game.

    I have to say all these reviews offer something dead on about the game. But if you are fan you owe it to yourself to play this version of the game. Amazing robot graphics and beautiful transformations. Solid pick for fan boys (or girls) alike.

    I thought that the graphics were good and the gameplay was okay, but the camera is bad. Most of the game feels unfinished in certain parts. You'll enjoy it for the most part if you are a fan of Transformers.

  1. To produce a technically sloppy title is one thing, but the game is horribly flawed from conception to execution in a way we haven't seen since, ulp, Driv3r. Marred by a remarkably vacuous combat system, the pathetic driving and undercooked flying elements merely underline what a thoroughly wasted opportunity this was.

    While Transformers: The Game may be something of a typical movie tie-in, there's just enough spark here to provide a bit of fun for anyone who likes the movie or is just looking for some dumb fun.
  3. Admittedly, the game is gorgeous. But because the narrative is as linear and rigid as a steel pipe, it's a shallow sort of beauty. [Sept 2007, p.83]
